We support the exchange of knowledge and provide networking platforms

The more that actors in international cooperation (IC) network with each other and with their current and potential employees, the better the Swiss IC labour market functions - to the benefit of your organisation. We provide you with numerous opportunities to exchange knowledge and network in groups that are right for you.

Membership Network cinfo

Through membership of Network cinfo, we connect institutional actors in international cooperation to an independent platform. We offer members reductions for their employees on services such as courses and training sessions, and events such as the Forum cinfo. Our motivation and goal is to ensure that Swiss IC actors share knowledge and work together on human resource issues through annual meetings or in virtual Communities of Practice.

Every two years, cinfo holds a symposium for managers and specialists from IC organisations. Topics include aspects of the labour market, professional challenges in the field and at the headquarters, and trends and best practice in recruitment and personnel development.

Career fair Forum cinfo

Every two years we organise a career fair, Forum cinfo, which provides a platform where IC employers, training institutions, job seekers and interested persons can meet. In addition to active networking and knowledge exchange, the fair offers you workshops, presentations, and information stands from different organisations. This is the place where actors of the Swiss IC labour market and selected multilateral organisations meet.

Communities of practice for specialists

Employees of organisations that are members of Network cinfo can share their experience and knowledge about their concerns and challenges in the area of human resources and HR development in an online platform. In doing so, organisations and their specialist employees extend their network and, through their cooperation, support the quality of human resource practices in international cooperation.
